The importance of proactive management



Are you a leader or are you a firefighter? In this video, Dan Elzer explains the importance of being a proactive manager, rather than one who focuses on fixing problems as they occur.

Here are Dan's key points:

  • A manager should spend 15-20 percent of his or her time focusing on planning for the future
  • A good manager focuses on preventing problems, rather than responding to them when they happen
  • Think about how you can effectively delegate tasks
